    Apart from these flaws, the issue just doesn't come together in an altogether satisfying manner. The script shifts between flashbacks and present day sequences frequently. It covers several different conflicts at once. In its worst moments this book reads more like a distillation of everything Greg Pak and Jeph Loeb weren't able to fit into their own books. Issue #1 focused on the rebirth of Cosmic Hulk. This issue is all about Thundra and Lyra. Next month is A-Bomb's turn. Where's the connective tissue? Parker has proven by now he has the talent to take point on these stories. I would love to see him take on a Hulk book that allows him more room to breathe and tell a complete and satisfying story. As it is, this issue almost gets us there. Read Full Review

    Despite the attempt to tell a story about Thundra and Lyra, the reliance on flashbacks for several different characters and an inability to stick with one plot thread ultimately ruin the issue's flow. This material would have made for a fine back-up feature, but the emotional core is too far removed, and the plot mechanics too disparate to form a satisfying story. It's not the worst comic the Red Hulk has appeared in by a long shot, but in the bigger picture, the only thing its contents are good for is padding out future handbook entries on the Red Hulk, Thundra and Lyra " and that's not enough of a reason for it to exist.
